          April 25, 2018

          Her two oldest, 18-year-old Ryan and 15-year-old Maddie, say Jenny is the worst mom because she rarely gets out of bed and is always threatening to leave them or to drive her car off a cliff.

          Jenny says she had a terrible role model, her mother, Lisa. For the first time, Jenny reveals a family secret to her mother that she’s been holding onto for 17 years.
